If Sony is still struggling to catch up with smartphone and tablet powerhouses Apple and Samsung (not to mention a slew of other capable rivals), it hasn't been for lack of trying. The company's Xperia line, in particular, boasts impressive, stylish construction based on Sony's OmniBalance philosophy, which is to create balance and symmetry in all directions. The Xperia Z2 tablet and smartphone, released this week at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, continue the evolution of the Xperia product line with a host of features focused on recording photos and videos. The Z2 smartphone's ability to record 4K video is particularly noteworthy, as is the slew of camera-based applications that allow users to alter their photos with in-depth and creative customization. The Z2 tablet, meanwhile, is going after business users with the inclusion of OfficeSuite Pro 7 software and enhanced security to protect personal content and business files. Short of Panasonic's military-grade Toughbooks, Sony also offers some of the best waterproof and dust-resistant products on the market, and that includes the new Z2 smartphone and tablet. Following is an in-depth look at what makes Sony's latest two Xperia mobile devices so alluring.

    With enhanced video mode, users can now capture moments in minute detail with 4K resolution (3,840 by 2,160 pixels/30p), which offers four times the detail of Full HD. Features like SteadyShot image stabilization ensures footage will stay smooth even if the camera is moving, and Movie Creator allows users to trim and crop videos so they can edit down what they want to share.

To relive action in slow-motion detail, Timeshift video mode lets users shoot in 120 frames per second and select scenes to slow the playback speed.

  • Waterproof Technology Keeps Z2's Insides Dry

    One of the unique features of Sony's Xperia products, including the Z2 tablet and smartphone, is its waterproof and dustproof construction, which lets users take their phone underwater without fear of wiping it out. The smartphone's IP58 waterproof certification means the Z2 will last for up to 30 minutes at 5 feet under water—an impressive feat for a device featuring a 5.2-inch display and advanced camera.

Meanwhile, a compact STM10 stereo microphone offers high-quality stereo audio recording.

In addition to its lightweight (only 426 grams for the WiFi model and 439 grams for LTE/3G model) design, the tablet is waterproof, so not only is it protected against accidental spills but users can take it into aqueous environments, be it at the beach or in the bathtub.
